Wayland’s online credit and enrichment classes help students follow their curiosity and boost their skills for the coming school year. These dynamic, challenging, and supportive courses combine asynchronous and synchronous instruction—a flexible model that allows students to access their coursework when it fits their summer schedule. Select either a 5-week or a 10-week course option to fit your schedule and educational goals.

Wayland offers two programs: The Pillar program for incoming high school students and the Plinth program for 7th and 8th grade students.  Wayland Academy is accredited by Independent School of the Central States.

Wayland Academy Pillar Summer School (9th, 10th, 11th, 12th grade) 
Students who successfully complete these intensive courses may earn a full year’s academic credit and letter grade. Each class requires a minimum of 15-20 hours of coursework per week.
 
Wayland Academy Plinth Summer School (7th and 8th grade) 
A plinth is the base of a pillar. Coursework in this session supports students’ advanced work in a rigorous, college-prep, independent secondary school. Students may earn high school credit upon successful completion of these courses.
 
Please Note: To transfer earned credit to another school, please make prior arrangements with that institution and Wayland Academy. Accepting earned credit from Wayland Academy Summer School is at the sole discretion of the awarding institution. 
 
Teacher-Led, Inspiring, and Challenging Classes
Our summer classes deliver the same rigorous, inspired curriculum as our academic year courses. Throughout the summer, teachers will lead two to three one-hour synchronous classes each week. Outside of this time, students will listen to prerecorded lectures, complete readings, join discussion boards, submit tests or activities, and review weekly homework. Some classes also include virtual field trips and/or lab activities. Students must complete all coursework before a grade and credit may be granted.
 
Convenient Learning Management System 
Summer students will receive a Wayland email account and access to MyWayland, the school’s learning management system. On MyWayland, students will find class pages, multi-media course content, discussion boards, assessments, and all grading information.
 
Accessible Textbooks and Classroom Materials 
Required class materials vary by course and instructor. Most materials are available free online, but families are responsible for the purchase of any additional required books, fee-based online documents, or lab supplies if needed. Any purchase requirements will be kept to a minimum, and enrolled students will receive a list of these items upon registration.
 
Guidance for Online Learning 
Even if you are taking an online class for the first time, we are here for you every step of the way! Students and families receive an orientation packet, video instructions for our learning management system, and strategies and tips for a successful online learning experience. 
 
Comprehensive Student Support 
Students are fully supported in all aspects of the online learning process. They will have direct access to their teachers for real-time video conferencing, formative assessment feedback, and guidance in developing and reinforcing critical academic skills. Teachers closely monitor each student’s progress and provide timely and detailed comments throughout the two five-week sessions. Wayland teachers are passionate about education and committed to the academic growth and success of every student.
 
Open Partnership with Parents
At Wayland, we know parents play a critical role in students’ academic success. From summer registration to final report cards, we partner with parents to ensure a meaningful and memorable learning experience for their sons and daughters. This includes direct access to program administration and faculty, as well as the ability to view progress and grade reports.
